Botanophilia in eighteenth-century France : the spirit of the Enlightenment by Roger Lawrence Williams ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book describes the innovations that enabled botany, in the eighteenth century, to emerge as an independent science, independent from medicine and herbalism. This encompassed the development of a reliable system for plant classification and the invention of nomenclature that could be universally applied and understood. The key that enabled Linnaeus to devise his classification system was the disovery of the sexuality of plants. The book, which is intended for the educated general reader, proceeds to illustrate how many aspects of French life were permeated by this revolution in botany between about 1760 to 1815, a botanophilia sometimes inflated into botanomania
French botany in the Enlightenment : the ill-fated voyages of La Pérouse and his rescuers by Roger Lawrence Williams ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume completes a trilogy meant to be a commentary on the botanophilia that captured the literate public in 18th-century France. Enthusiastic public support for any governmental initiative likely to expand botanical knowledge was an expression of immense curiosity about the natural world beyond Europe, which extended into a curiosity about primitive people and cultures little known. It amounted to a quest for universal knowledge that could benefit all mankind: useful knowledge that could improve the human condition in this life. That was the spirit of the Enlightenment, the sciences believed to be the key to humanity's advancement. The botanists exploring abroad brought back exciting quantities of new species and genera, but also a message about the condition of primitive people that undercut the fashionable image of noble savagery. No matter how dispiriting were some of the conditions they observed abroad, they retained a faith that ignorance and superstition could be vanquished
The letters of Dominique Chaix, botanist-curé by Dominique Chaix ( Book )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first publication of the 170 letters written by the Abbé Dominique Chaix to Dr. Dominique Villars between 1772 and 1799, when they were collaborating on the publication of the first flora for the old province of Dauphiné. The letters reveal the uncertainties of plant classification in the late 18th century, but, more generally, the penetration of the Enlightenment into a remote, alpine region of France. Both botanists were of recent peasant origin, invading, albeit deferentially, an intellectual field, traditionally the monopoly of their social betters. The letters also document the enthusiasms, anxieties, and perils of rural clerical life during the French Revolution, and give occasional evidence about the deforestation of the mountains
